No I don't own the one I showed you, but I'd like to have one someday.
The screen is a bit of a pain, but with a good 1541 mech in it and a
JiffyDOS modification, I can imagine that it'd work quite well,  Heck,
I bet you could hack an FD-2000 into the case if you really wanted to.
I don't recall that the one I had had two drives, but it might have.

The screen really isn't great and probably is the biggest problem
with the SX-64.  Look at the keyboard in front of you and imagine a
screen that from top to bottom is no taller than the distance from 
the bottom of your space bar to top of the QWERTY row...that's about
the size of it.
